. >> . >> and welcome to "hannity." now, today marked day two of president barack obama's trip to the middle east. he ignored our ali, he's trying to bridge the formidable divide between us and israel. he has the teleprompters working overtime, but that could not save him. he was not greeted with pleasantries by everybody. take a look. >> i believe your future is bound to ours. [audience yelling] no, no, this is part of the debate that we talked about. i have to say we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home. and you know, i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have at least one heckler. >> sean: i wonder why so many of them wouldn't be happy with you, mr. president. maybe it's because even though you're now trying to act as a friend to israel they know they can't take you at your word. you haven't paid any attention to israel until this week. rather than relying on the words scrolling on your teleprompters, the israelis should focus on what he's done in the past. this president called on israel and palestine to withdraw to 1967 borders. netanyahu said it would be quote, undefensi

. >> big decision to make. eric? >> kerry is in iraq today. president obama returned from his four-day tour of the middle east. the first foreign trip of his second term. first trip to israel as president. some view the trip as a so-called charm offensive. israel and an attempt to thaw the rocky-strained relationship he has with binyamin netanyahu. is that relationship now thawed? will it work? what about iran? joining us as always on sunday mornings, former ambassador john bolton and fox contributor. good morning, ambassador. >> good morning. glad to be with you. >> good to see you, as always. how did he do? how about the relationship between the president and the prime minister? >> i think that the president's trip always had two purposes. one was the public political aspect of the trip to try to repair the very visibly frosty relationship that he had with israel and in his first term. and i think that he largely accomplished that, photo opportunities were great. the -- they had humor, a couple of hugs. really what else could you ask for? but underneath, the second purpose of the trip, i

in additional aid, and mr. obama also pushed back at some criticisms of why the u.s. has not intervened militarily in syria. take a listen. >> you know, i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily it's criticized, and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> reporter: the president should be back in the u.s. just shy of midnight tonight, but while mr. obama heads home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, pet
workers it comes to mind that president obama nominateed tomas perez secretary of labor. does he help with what you're talking about? >> oh absolutely. 's terrific lawyer. we worked together in the clinton administration. he really understands these issues. i think that you're going to see a very forceful advocate, and someone who is very knowledgeable and can really help the administration navigate in the coming months the negotiations on this issue of immigration reform. >> michael: and do you think then that we will see comprehensive immigration reform this year? >> you know, i have been working on this issue for over ten years, even when i was in the white house, you know, 13, 14 years ago. so i am cautiously optimistic, but the real--i actually saw what i guess boehner said something today about the secret committee in the house that is also very close to negotiating something, the bipartisan group. that is the first sign of that i've seen. it will be the house republicans who are worried about tea party challenges, challenges from the right. they will be the obstacle. if there c
public that although president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu hasn't had necessarily the coziest of relationships, that the two countries are still aligned to one another. in fact, the israeli embassy in washington released this video that we're about to show you to just show the connection between the two countries. >> warmly welcome president obama to israel. to express our appreciation for what he has done for us. >> the bond between the united states and israel are unbreakable. and the commitment of the united states to the security of israel is ironclad. ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ traveled down the road >> reporter: so obviously president obama and prime minister netanyahu may not have had the coziest of relationships, but the two countries are reaffirming their alliance to one another, especially in the next couple of days. richard? >> that video reminding us of jibjab perhaps. thank you. >>> the pentagon is launching an investigation into the safety of mortars following an explosion monday night on a base in nevada. this morning the military confirmed
it was the other side. but u.s. intelligence officials have not been able to confirm the reports. president obama has said that chemical weapons would be, quote, a gameing us for a fair d balanced discussion. congressman edroyce and the ranking member of the committee, congressman eliet engle. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> shannon: mr. chairman, your reaction to the news that the opposition leader, backed by the syria says he's resigning because he hasn't gotten enough support? itch this is a big problem. we have finally made a decision, it's too late in the game, to use actionable intelligence it and to assist the free syrian forces on the ground. but here's why we needed to do more to assist this faction. their competition against assad is the cited franchise that operate there is, mostly foreign fighters. so if we with our intelligence and by giving the green light to our allies, if we can do more to assist the free syrian army, we can destabilize and perhaps remove assad. the sooner that happens, the better. i say that because assad now has iranian troops on the ground in syria. we do
to weigh in on an up popular law. cruz says it hasn't lived up to expectations. >> when obama care was being proposed the president told americans the average american family would see our premiums drop by $2,500. instead, today, the average american family has seen our premiums rise by $3,000. that's a $5,500 difference between what was promised and what has been delivered. so, for democrats on the 2014 ballot, such as mary lan drew of louisiana, mark pryor of arkansas, they had to vote in favor of the president's healthcare law in what may be considered largely red republican states. so, you can bet there will be ads running over the next two years saying, when senator so and so had a repeal obamacare, he or she voted in favor of it. >> shepard: mike, thanks a lot. let's bring in chris wallace. how is this thing shaping up? >> well, you put your finger on it. this is largely for show. we know that the budget, the democratic budget, is going to pass and the democratic controlled senate and will not pass in the republican-controlled house. but this vote-a-rama that mike is talking
. >> manufacturing, obama says those jobs are gone forever. >> he does not say that, actually. >> when did he say that? >> president obama did not say that. >> we've got to admit those jobs are gone. >> no. >> some. >> he worked hard to bring back manufacturing. >> perhaps most typical -- let's get back to our report. reince priebus, it's about communication but the party never tried to stop to distant franchise, mainly poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> wel

pinhead of the week, o'reilly. when the president is barack obama, it's beyond, a complete waste of time. and republicans should say they're not if favor of the law and who is the guy who laughs in the background? and that's canned laughter, clemente, kind of what they do on ""i love lucy"" we can't afford the entire audience laugh so we've got one person that laughs. press that button. (laughter) see, i told you. the factor tip of the day. one of the most common phrases in the english language is i'm sorry. we all say it because we all do things that aren't good. the problem is it's not enough to say i'm sorry, and children especially need to learn that. if you do something bad to another person, you need to make amends as well as apologize. so, here is the factor tip of the day, think back over the last few weeks and months and if you've hurt somebody, even if you've apologized, try to make it up to them in a concrete way. and going forward, i'm sorry should always be accompanied by some form of restitution. that will automatically make you a person with class. factor tip of th

spared a lot of bloodshed. >> a major headline this morning, barack obama's first trip as president to israel. with so many political hot button issues in the mideast can we expect the president to make many accomplishments during this historic visit? >> ten years after the iraq war we'll introduce you to veterans who cannot forget their military and personal battles looking ahead to the future. don't miss bob woodruff's special report coming up. >> later on, the on again/off again romance of katy perry and john mayer. their personal life can make interesting song lyrics weaned may have the final verse in "the skinny". >>> firsz, the details in the foiled plot to kill students at a university campus in florida. >> police say the gunman came dangerously close to carrying out his planned massacre until his roommate took incredibly brave action. abc's matt gutman is in orlando. >> reporter: the first video from police cameras, tracking down a would-be killer, body mounted cameras showing cops with assault rifles discovered the body of the gunman along with his arse
challenges against proposition 8 and the defense of marriage act. >>> president obama is back home in the u.s. he was in israel, the west bank, and jordan. >>> secretary of state john kerry remains in the middle east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president
with obama as president and the democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. in other words, we're now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget which for 1418 days, four years, they never wrote a budget. how do you campaign against democrats in the senate if they don't even write down what they're for? so there are differences in how you structure. i think there's a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin who made dramatic changes on the cost of government, government-run pensions, the unionized government work force and bobby jindal with school choice. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines
obama. and then trying to help broker that turkish/israeli agreement to restart their relations. and then, of course, his trip to jordan and then the unannounced secret trip to baghdad only yesterday, where he was really chiding and warning prime minister maliki that he has to do something to stop those iranian overflights, rearming syria. so this has been a pretty busy trip, a late-night dinner they have not announced last night with the very powerful head of the army, the army chief of staff, cayenny from pakistan in eamon of all things. he's not going to pakistan on this trip and usually secretaries of state go to both pakistan and afghanistan. but he's not going to pakistan, because they are in a political transition, and it just could not be worked out. so there has been a lot on his plate. but right now, front and center is president karzai. chris? >> thanks, andrea. >>> next, a big week ahead for same-sex marriage. as the supreme court takes up two cases that could be a game-changer for millions of gay and lesbian couples nationwide. we'll break down what's at stake. >>>

obama's first trip since he was a candidate back in 2008. a source of controversy of course. the president embarked on the trip yesterday evening has a packed schedule, including meetings with the israeli president and joint tpheus conference with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. a stalled peace process with the palestinians, there's a lot to talk about. peter alexander live in tel aviv. peter, what are we expecting today? >> reporter: well, he's got a busy trip, though it's not a very long one. we're in the city of jerusalem. bill, you can see on this gorgeous day, the old city of jerusalem, holy city. a senior administration official giving advice on the issue said this provides the opportunity for a reset between the relationship that the u.s. has with israel. in many ways this trip will be more about symbolism, though, than it is about substance. here they are billing as the unbreakable alliance. a little bit later today the president will meet with prime minister netanyahu. the will focus on the iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. they set low expectations in terms of
for today. >> hal: yeah. news. >> all right. news. president obama's middle east trip continues as he starts and ends the day in jer ruse lum. but is currently visiting with president ah bahs. tomorrow he plans to meet in jordan. abbas reportedly worried about increasing conflict. president obama said if the investigation he ordered find that sirrian weapons have been used on his people, that would change his position on getting u.s. forces involved. president obama also reaffirming the u.s.'s commit to prevent a nuclear-armed iran. lots of news this morning, but we have got more show. stay with us after the break. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com dude, i need your help fast. well, clearasil's fast. yeah, but is it this fast? faster! how about this fast? clearasil's faster! this fast?? faster!! woh! that is fast! fix breakouts fast with clearasil ultra. it starts working instantly, sending the max amount of medicine allowed deep into your pores for visibly clearer skin in as little as 12 hours. yeah

of barack obama when it comes to drones, on the other hand, you are to the right of congressman paul ryan, whose budget you oppose, voted against this weekend, in the senate, because you say that it doesn't cut the budget balance -- budget fast enough. do you think there is room for a realistic, feasible presidential candidate who is to the left of obama on some issues and to the right of paul ryan, on other issues? >> i think we have a confusing spectrum, the left-right spectrum doesn't always work for people but because of the confusion it shows that someone like myself, i think, could appeal to young people, independents and moderates, because, many of them do think it is a mistake to put people in jail for marijuana use and throw away the key. so, i think there are people who would like a less aggressive foreign policy and there are all kinds of issues that don't neatly left in the left-right paradigm that i think would help, because we're not doing very well in a lot of these states, purple and blue states and we need a candidate that would appeal across the left-right paradigm. >> c
.s., the obama administration, very reluctant to get in involved. we just had gotten out of iraq, are still in afghanistan and the american people are drained. there is growing pressure on both left and right, particularly from both carl levin, and john mccain, the leading armed services republican last week, writing to the president saying, we've got to do more. we've got to stop assad from hitting his own people from the air. we've got to take out some of his air power, and we should be using military force. craig? >> nbc's andrea mitchell in amman, jordan. andrea, thank you. safe travels. >> reporter: sauthank you so mu craig. >>> and president obama is back at 1600 pennsylvania avenue after a busy four days in the middle east. he met with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders but did not get a happy homeum canning this morning from house intelligence chairman mike rogers. >> this has such global implications, and i really, candidly i thought the trip was a dus appointment for us. i think the president's squandered great opportunity to actually show leadership. >> reporter: and epic
immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things which may be important but sound a bit frivolous to people reading it. jon: why is that important? >> well i think it is not everyone watches fox news. not everyone watches, the evening news at night. some people read entertainment weekly and don't actually get serious hard news. some way to reach out into the culture and to the people who are not watching cable news 24 hours a day. maybe go on some of these shows. as you know a lot of youth watch "the daily show" and "the colbert report." that may be a way to reach out to them. i think that is the reasoning behind it. whether that is true or not, who knows. jon: but at th
